I'm considering popping some popcorn the old fashioned way and was wondering what folks' favorite brands are. I'm just going to do it in a pot with a lid on the stovetop, so something really easily poppable is essential.
Other questions: does popcorn need to be stored in a cool, dark dry place so it doesn't absorb moisture? I assume so.
The most important question is whether it's worth the trouble. Does microwave popcorn taste just as good and cost less these days?
